The Fine Wines Of Spain: While we are fans of all the major wine producing regions, Spanish wines have captured our hearts as producing some of the most spectacular tasting wines in the world as well as great values. Spain has the greatest number of vines planted in the world. However, in the last 15 - 20 years Spain has undergone a radical transformation and has started producing Spanish wines for the international consumer. The major wine producing regions in Spain are Rioja, Ribera del Duero, Toro, Rueda, Priorat, Montsant, Calatayud, Jumilla, Navarra and Rias Baixas. The major Spanish wine varietals are Tempranillo, Tinto del Toro, Grenache, Albarino, Verdejo, Viura. Some notable producers that we are quite fond of are Bodegas El Nido, Alto Moncayo, Cellar Marti Fabre, Cellar Vall Llach, Mas Doix, Emilio Moro, Bodegas y Vinedos Vega Sicilia, Bodegas y Vinedos Alion, Bodegas Naia, Numanthia-Termes S.L., Bodegas Muga S.A. and many other wines of Spain.
